Team of twelve cross the London Marathon finish line for St Clare Hospice
Athletics / Mon 24th Apr 2023 at 03:34pm
ON Sunday 23rd April a team of twelve runners completed the London Marathon in aid of local charity, St Clare Hospice.
The team have so far raised a combined total of more than £26,000 for the Hospice. That is enough to fund over 12 days of the entire Hospice at Home service, offering vital care to families in the comfort of their own home.
St Clare Hospice’s Relationship Fundraising Manager, Ellie Gale, said: “We went out and cheered on our runners from the side-lines, and not only did they have to tackle 26.2 miles, they did it all running through the elements and pouring rain! We couldn’t be more proud and grateful for the effort that each and every one of them has put it. £26,000 is an incredible amount to have raised, and will make such a difference to local families facing one of life’s hardest journeys, who need our support. Thank you, Team St Clare!”
If you didn’t get a chance to run in this year’s London Marathon, why not take on the Royal Parks Half Marathon in October? It is the ‘best half’ of the London Marathon, taking in all the historic sites, and you can get a place with Team St Clare now.
